Inappropriate Chicken Names


Recommended Posts

My wife and I have discussed the possibility of purchasing some backyard chickens for the girls to play with and care for. Some rather um... creative names for the birds came up in our discussion. Some of the top names are Spatchcock, Colonel (as in Sanders), Coco (Coq Au Vin), and Kapparos.

Do you have any fun and inappropriate names for chickens?

I just got back from North Carolina and lots of people we stayed with have chickens. Chickens are a laugh a minute, and seem able to live up to just about any name you can think of. Our friend's heart belongs to a chicken named Fiona. All names for chickens seem equally inappropriate and excellent. My first red hen is going to be named Paprika. Or Pippi Longstocking.

My daughter raised chickens at school some years ago. One of the class favorites was called Count Crapula, and when she brought three home I wanted to name them Satay (the brown one), hainan (the white one) and Bakar (the black one) after my favorite Malaysian chicken dishes.

We currently have three others with more conventional names - Henny, Penny and Mudslide (white chicken with brown breast feathers)
